Header Challenge:green

July 3, 2013

Today's challenge is green.  It was my pick, and to be honest, I didn't have any clear ideas in mind prior to the selection, but I figured it would be easy for us to find something good in green, whether new or from the archives.  What you see here then is pretty raw.  Last week I spent time with my parents at a time share, and the tinted water on the manicured golf course struck me funny, like it was fake scenery, so I took a picture.  Except for the border and text, the image is SOOC (straight out of the camera).  Oh, and I obviously cropped it to the 16 x 8 format I like to use for my headers. Check out my  pals for their interpretations on this theme: Fishing  Guy, Katney, Imac and Lew.

This one may be a bit overbaked.  I still like it because the color saturation makes it pop!  I didn't pick it for the header because it exceeds reality too much for my taste.

The depth & focal zoom for this carpetball setup is interesting, yes?

It's a nice touch when bloggers give specific names of bugs & stuff, so we'll call this character "Bob."

And this fella is "Todd."

I have little toys decorating my work cubicle.

I like these so much better than the flowers and stuff at other work stations.

More green?  Yes, please & tanks.

Love the focal zoom for the shot you chose. Great choice.
The water in your header photo is beautiful.
Happy 4th, my friend.

I really like your header, but all of your green photos are wonderful. It was nice meeting Bob and Todd.
